Potato pick and Spring seed shuffle 2021

Potato pick and spring seed shuffle

Although we aren’t able to get together again just yet, thankfully Spring isn’t cancelled. We’re still here to help you grow your own food. We would usually have our annual Huddersfield Potato Day and Seed Swap on the first Saturday in March – so we’ve come up with an alternative to help you get growing.

You can order seed potatoes, onions and shallots from us now. We also have some vegetable seeds that are good for growing in small spaces.

You can order and pay online, then collect from Newsome village. If you’re shielding or self-isolating, we’ll do our best to deliver to you at home.

If restrictions are eased over the next few weeks, we may also be able to have a pop up stall that you can come along to for more goodies. But in the meantime, please let us know what you’d like and we’ll do our best to help.

You can choose just what you need from our selection of 20 different varieties. We have limited quantities of some varieties this time, but we also have our six most popular varieties in larger quantities than usual.

Shielding or self-isolating? 

Please fill in our online order form to make a request. We’re hoping to deliver to people in Newsome and the wider Huddersfield area. If we’re able to deliver to you, we’ll confirm your order and send you a link that you can use to pay online. After we receive your payment, one of our volunteers will bring your order to you at home. If you have any questions, please let us know.
